  1. Many of these tracks are owned by Ms. Belinda Stronach under former names: Magna Entertainment Group (AKA MEG), The Stronach Group, and now 1st.
    Just to give you a laugh for today they are using the term “1st” in an ambiguous way not only for their racehorse mangling and killing company, but claiming that they put the racehorse “1st.”
    How are those super pumped up safety reforms working Ms. Stronach?
    Not very good according to this most recent Kill List.
    Never heard you say that you would shut down horse racing when racehorses continue to die on all of your tracks or did I miss that?
    Ms. Stronach, the largest track owner in the world continues to facilitate the massive suffering and dying of racehorses just like your Daddy did right?
    I suppose the approximate 20 wagering firms you inherited, whose million dollar profits are made off the bones, backs and lives of racehorses, is a little too enticing to do the right thing?
    Male or female they are all the same exploiters, abusers and racehorse killers.
